EvCC students perform 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead' Nov. 15-17 and Nov. 29-Dec. 1
Everett Community College students will perform “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 15-17 and Nov. 29-Dec. 1 in Baker Hall, Room 120.
Tom Stoppard’s play takes two minor characters in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” and elevates them to playing the leads.
In Stoppard's play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are seen at the moments that they do not appear on stage in Hamlet. But, since Shakespeare never provided this off stage information, they are at a loss to figure out who they are and why they are there.
At various times in “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead,” the characters from Hamlet come in, and we get the scenes in which these two poor souls do appear, but then they are left alone again, trying to make sense of this world turned upside down.
The play is directed by Andrew Rice. The cast includes: Samantha Lee, Nicole Puzey, Kyle Joy, Alex Hills, Nikki Maier, Caleb Dunn, Phoebe Nguyen, Tatiana Warnek, Eva Bresciano, Eric Zanoni, Kat Johnston, Dylan Hussey and Winter Kartak.
Production staff include stage manager Daniel Round, set designer Noah Holland and lighting by Jodee Kreitel.
Admission is by donation. The play is open to the public, although theatergoers are asked not to bring infants. For more information, call 425-388-9525.
